New York Jets General Manager Candidate: Tom Gamble

Tom Gamble is a very experienced general manager candidate. He has experience doing pretty much everything. His bio on the 49ers website notes he has scouted college and professional football, negotiated contracts, and coached. He even has ties to the Kotite Era Jets. Despite that unfortunate resume blemish, Gamble is a desired general manager candidate.

Since 2011, he has been Director of Player Personnel. He has been given some responsibility over the Draft, but Gamble's primary responsibility has been making sure the 49ers acquire the best available players from other teams.

Gamble has a solid track record. The Niners have become one of the best teams in the NFL under his watch at least in part because of solid free agent additions such as Carlos Rogers, Donte Whitner, and Jonathan Goodwin. I happen to think the success is due much more to the incredible coaching of Jim Harbaugh and Harbaugh's staff., but Gamble has been part of a well-run organization.

Gamble has a lot of experience in the NFL, which means he has a long list of quality people he knows and could bring in. He also has been involved in more aspects of running a team than many first time general managers do. I'm not really sure he'd be a homerun hire, but he is qualified to be a general manager. I wouldn't be thrilled if he was hired, but I wouldn't be upset either.

Would you approve of Gamble becoming GM?
